Toronto councilor Norm Kelly reaches out to the Based God for Raptors blessing

With one quick tweet, Toronto’s favorite city councilor is hoping to change the Raptors’ fortunes.

Norm Kelly, the unofficial mayor of Twitter in Toronto, is an avid fan of Toronto’s sports franchises. With the Leafs trailing the Capitals 3-2 and the Raptors struggling in Milwaukee, a superstitious Kelly called for a blessing from Lil B, a rapper known for his notorious hexes.

It didn’t take long for the Bay Area artist to oblige:


It may not seem like a big deal, but Toronto should be happy to be on the Based God’s good side. His infamous spat with Kevin Durant and James Harden have led many to believe the curse of Lil’B holds true.



Though the California native has lifted the curse on KD since the former MVP joined the Golden State Warriors — coincidentally his favorite team — Lil B’s feelings toward Harden have recently been on edge.


The Raptors hope to even the series against the Bucks on Saturday afternoon in Milwaukee, while the Leafs attempt to stave off elimination in Sunday’s Game 6 against the Capitals.
